JumpStart Adventures 3rd Grade Mystery Mountain Full PC Game Overview
JumpStart Adventures 3rd Grade Mystery Mountain Download Free Full Game is a personal computer game in Knowledge Adventure's JumpStart series of educational software. As the title suggests, the game is intended to teach a third grade curriculum. This is the only version of this game created and, unusually for Knowledge Adventure, was still being sold over fifteen years after its initial release in 1996. In the 2000s, it was included as the «Fundamentals» disc of JumpStart Advanced 3rd Grade.
Set in a retro-futuristic universe, the game concerns Polly Spark, the bratty daughter of an apparently very wealthy inventor, and her attempt to alter history so that her inane answers to a history quiz she failed will be correct. To do this, she sends twenty-five reprogrammed robots back in time and, with her father conveniently away on a business trip, she takes over Mystery Mountain, the literal «mountain mansion» where she and her father live. The goal of the game is to help Botley, the robot assigned to keep Polly under control, save the world by retrieving each of the twenty-five robots and bringing them back to the present.
Botley the Robot
Android XL2 («Botley») is an amiable robot possessing levels of artificial intelligence and self-awareness not feasible with current technology. Botley was built by Professor Spark as a «prototype companion device» for his daughter Polly since the Professor had difficulty finding sitters for her since she kept scaring them away.

Curiously, Botley seems to be able to override his own programming if he sees fit since he stated that it was against his programming to reveal the existence of the Time Machine and that he decided to reveal it to the user anyway given the global emergency Polly had created. Also, Botley possesses lingual capabilities, as he can be heard speaking in Russian, so it can be assumed that he also possesses fluency in other languages besides English.
Botley is mostly cerulean in color with three buttons on his chest. The blue button makes a rocket come out of his back, enabling him to fly, though not very well since he wasn't programmed to fly. The red button opens up his stomach plate, but the game never explains what the green button does. Botley has a yellow antenna on top of his head that flashes when he activates his «powerful sensory device» and he can extend his right hand several yards by uncoiling a purple cord at the edge of his right arm.
On the bonus JumpStart Adventure Challenge (or, in JumpStart Advanced, Far-Out Field Trips, Ultimate Field Trips, or Extreme Field Trips) disc included with later releases of JumpStart products for 3rd-6th Grade, Botley appears gray instead of blue and he is depicted as being a tough mountain climber; almost a polar opposite of his more affable persona in JumpStart 3rd Grade where he appears to be rather clumsy and certainly not athletically inclined. Botley also appears in JumpStart SpyMasters: Unmask the Prankster, JumpStart SpyMasters: Max Strikes Back and JumpStart World. According to the JumpStart World interactive map, his best friend is Frankie (a dog who first appeared in JumpStart 1st Grade), his favorite color is silver and his «birthday» is February 14 (Valentine's Day), probably when he was created and activated by Professor Spark.

Voice actors were not credited for the specific characters they voiced in either JumpStart 3rd Grade or JumpStart Typing, but Botley was voiced by Jeannie Elias in JumpStart 3rd Grade and by Michael Goeff in JumpStart Typing. His voice was supplied by Dee Bradley Baker for the «Mystery Club» disc of JumpStart Advanced 3rd Grade. Although Botley continues to appear in JumpStart products, JumpStart Typing remains his last appearance in the canon established in JumpStart 3rd Grade.
Polly Spark is Professor Spark's third-grade daughter and Botley's main purpose is the unenviable task of keeping her under control. Apart from JumpStart 3rd Grade, Polly is featured in JumpStart Typing and in the JumpStart Power Prep interactive DVD series.
In JumpStart 3rd Grade, Polly serves as the game's antagonist and is portrayed as being a spoiled brat, regularly calling Botley names such as «Snotley,» «Potley» and «Dotley.» The game also makes her out to be rather fiendish considering that many of her changes to the timeline would almost certainly result in many people being hurt or killed (it is unlikely she is entirely aware of the damage she can cause, however; one of her changes to the timeline would cause people to believe that radium is harmless and therefore continue to use it in luminous paint) as well as give her a degree of personal power verging on world domination.
In JumpStart Typing, Polly is considerably nicer and agrees to help Botley rescue Coach Qwerty from the Trophy Room, though only when she is faced with the possibility of her father finding out that she had locked him in there to begin with. At the end of JumpStart Typing, she apologizes to Coach Qwerty for her actions and he forgives her. One consistency, however, between her seemingly antithetical portrayals in 3rd Grade and Typing is that in both games her bad deeds arise out of wounded pride resulting from the fact that she apparently considers herself intellectually superior to others.

Interestingly, it is not until JumpStart Typing that she and Botley actually appear together, since, in JumpStart 3rd Grade, she remains in her father's secret chamber, apparently the Mountain's control room, for the entire game and communicates with Botley and the user only through a series of video monitors. Also in 3rd Grade, she appears to have a small robotic lackey, who looks somewhat like a floating shark. This robot delivers Botley and the user new TransQuizzer disks, can occasionally be seen attempting to sabotage the Mountain's generator with a banana and appears with Polly in her father's secret chamber at the beginning and end of the game.
Polly has blonde hair set in pigtails and she wears large goggles, what appears to be a lab coat worn as a dress, bright green socks and red sneakers. Most of the time, her eyebrows float above her head in a cartoonish fashion, though they tend to come down onto the tops of her glasses when she's in a particularly diabolical mood, making her look rather sinister. She was probably voiced by Jeannie Elias in both JumpStart 3rd Grade and JumpStart Typing, although she may have been voiced by a «Pat Lentz» (presumably Tony Pope's wife Patricia Lentz) in JumpStart 3rd Grade.
